News and Resources for Members of the IEEE Signal Processing Society

August 2022

The IEEE annual election begins on 15 August and ends on 3 October.  All ballots must be received by 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC.  The IEEE Signal Processing Society is committed to ensuring that its members are prepared with sufficient information about the candidates in order to make their best-informed decision. 

This webinar presents ‘Tapestry’, a single-round pooled testing method with application to COVID-19 testing using quantitative Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) that can result in shorter testing time and conservation of reagents and testing kits, at clinically acceptable false positive or false negative rates.

Intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) has recently emerged as a promising paradigm for future wireless communications. Owing to its remarkable capability in reshaping the propagation environment, IRS has a great potential to boost spectral efficiency, mitigate interference, and enhance physical security. 

With the blooming of AI and machine-learning-based data-hungry applications and services, managing personal data and ensuring data privacy and security have become critical challenges.

This SPS webinar will introduce a novel data-driven cooperative localization and location data processing framework, called FedLoc, in line with the emerging machine learning and optimization techniques.

Audio pattern recognition is an important research topic in the machine learning area, and includes several tasks such as audio tagging, acoustic scene classification, music classification, speech emotion classification, and sound event detection. Recently, neural networks have been applied to tackle audio pattern recognition problems. 

Recently, deep convolutional neural network (CNNs) have been widely used in Single Image Super-Resolution (SISR) and have obtained great success. However, most of the existing methods are limited to local receptive field and equal treatment of different types of information; 

In the beginning of 2020, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has caused a pandemic disease in over 200 countries, affecting billions of humans. Identifying and separating the infected people during the early stage is the most important step in controlling the pandemic.

In accordance with the Bylaws of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, I am writing to solicit nominations for the Awards Board and the Nominations and Appointments (N&A) Committee. This year, the Society will be filling TWO positions on the N&A Committee for the term 2023-2024 and TWO positions on the Awards Board for the term 2023-2025. 

In this talk, we will discuss a panoramic view of digital forensics in the last 10 years and how it needed to evolve from basic computer vision and simple natural language processing techniques to powerful AI-driven methods to deal with the signs of the new age.
